Spiritual Sleuth

I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.
Proverbs 8:17

Give me a rainy day, a bowl of popcorn, a diet soda, and a good ol’ British mystery, a Miss Marple or Sherlock Holmes and I am in detective paradise.

A Bible study a number of years ago set me off on the continuing adventure of being a spiritual sleuth.  Now I do not mean some paranormal ghost-busting mumbo-jumbo.  In this Bible study a sentence stating that God engineers the details in the lives of His children just jumped off the page and imprinted itself in my brain.

I became so conscious of this sentence and its meaning that I began looking for His fingerprints in the details of my everyday life----and I found them EVERYWHERE!  Then I enlarged my search area to include the lives and events of family and friends.  He was leaving His fingerprints all over the place!  If it had been a crime scene and a court case God would have been convicted of being ‘big time’ involved in the daily details of His children’s lives.

It is not a crime scene and there is no court case.  It is the TRUTH.

Hebrews 11:6 reads, And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Matthew 7:8 reads, For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

The important characteristics of a spiritual sleuth are to keep your eyes open to details; study your subject (God) so you recognize Him and the evidence of His presence; learn how He operates and His motives.  Know, beyond any doubt, that when you put the evidence under the microscope of God’s Word you will have irrefutable proof they are His fingerprints.

Heavenly Father, open my eyes today to Your fingerprints on the details of my life.
